James, Percy and the fruitful day. 3 troublesome trucks and a ventilated van was carrying fruit.

I think I remember this Episode now and the Fruit Van's you are talking about. I will look for the 'James, Percy and the Fruitful Day' Episode on YouTube (Clearly I have not seen it for a while), but I do not think they would be successful if Bachmann where to release them. I admit Bachmann need to release more Ventilated Van's, because I do love them, but I think the Fireworks Van's would be more successful than the Fruit Van's for a selling and marketing point of view.

Maybe the fruit van could be a good candidate for troublesome truck 5. The fruit van could be a good way for getting kids to eat healthy. In real life, there were fruit vans of various styles designed for conveyance of fruit by rail, there was even a ventilated van type designed for transporting bananas.

Maybe it could do, or Troublesome Truck #5 could be a Tanker, like you see in the very early TV Series. I would love to have a one of these Troublesome Truck Tanker's! It would be so cool, and some different variety in the Troublesome Truck's available.

If a tanker for troublesome truck 5, maybe the discontinued tar tanker could be used.

Personally, if a Tanker would be used by Bachmann for Troublesome Truck #5, I would prefer it to be a plain black Tanker with no livery on it, with a small face on one end.

A sliding door van seems like a pretty reasonable idea coming from Bachmann since the ice cream van is the same tooling, minus the sliding door.  I'd say that addition would be pretty welcome in the Thomas range.  

A hopper wouldn't be a bad idea either coming from Bachmann, especially since the tooling would also be reused from the Mainline range:


I wouldn't mind seeing this having a ballast load included either, just like the coal wagon.  

As for the fruit van, that type of van has never been introduced through Mainline, so if they were to do this for the Thomas range, it would have to be a new tooling Bachmann would have to look into.  It also wouldn't be a bad idea for a Troublesome Truck #5 either since the same van has been used as a troublesome truck before.



I wouldn't mind if they did this but personally I'm a little doubtful since it's not often Bachmann make new toolings for rolling stock nowadays.  I'll admit that if they did this it would certainly be a step up compared to their other troublesome trucks, but at this point I would think that if we were to get a Troublesome Truck #5 I would assume they would use the tooling from either the salt wagon or ice cream wagon.

^ Above 1 Reply - @Reply #180 By Chaz: Good point there Chaz. The Closed Van that big face would also be a good Troublesome Truck for Bachmann to release. I hope either Troublesome Truck #5 or Troublesome Truck #6 will be the Closed Van with the big face (As pictured above in Chaz's post) or the Tanker I mentioned in a few post's above, with the small face at one end.

I know the toy fair is an exciting event for the Bachmann range, so I have my own reasons why I'm excited for the toy fair. I want to know out of curiosity. Why are you excited for the toy fair?

I thought the 'Purple' related to Brake Van's?!

I hope they make BoCo, the Fruit Van, and a separate sale Snowplow for Thomas.

BoCo and Thomas' Snowplow on it's own would be nice.

Is this when Bachmann will announce the new releases?
